The AMRC is an internationally renowned world-class centre for research, specialising in advanced manufacturing technologies used in the aerospace, automotive, medical and other high-value manufacturing sectors.

We have developed a global reputation for helping companies overcome manufacturing problems becoming a model for collaborative research involving universities, academics and industry, worldwide. We are now able to pass on this world class knowledge to future engineers by offering a research based MSc in Advanced Manufacturing Technology.

Students on the programme have the potentially life-changing opportunity to undertake modules related the latest advances in manufacturing technology, and apply this knowledge to an industrially motivated research project within the AMRC, all taught by some of the world leading academics.

The research project will be informed by real industrial applications and span across the entire manufacturing process, from materials suppliers to assembly specialists. Your project will focus on a topic that is a current challenge for industry and you will have the opportunity to investigate potential solutions using some of the most state-of-the-art machine tools in the world based at the AMRC’s Knowledge Transfer Centre.

Careers and employability

Our graduates will have expertise designed to improve their employability within the aerospace, automotive and design and development industry sectors, to name a few.

Past students have come from all over the world and gone to work for prestigious international manufacturing companies and research institutions and some others have used the course as an excellent stepping stone towards undertaking a PhD in Mechanical Engineering.

“I was exposed to a great amount of recent research in materials, tribology and controls systems as well as practical experience in the AMRC. The projects offered have the support of experts in the field and are innovative and challenging. These experiences give me a solid background that is very useful in my career in industry.” Fernando Flores, Associate Professor of the Faculty of Mechanical and Electrical Engineering, State University of Nuevo Leon
